Yes they do have it inspected so he would eventually find out about the curved roof on the right hand side.
Here are some photos I took on the way to my daughter's place.
This is the one marked sold more than asking price, I couldn't get the best photo in traffic, but it is bigger than the garage!

here it is again, this time looking south at it on Royal York road, north of Edenbridge.

This one is for sale on Edenbridge about 600 meters away up the hill.

The next one sold on Edenbrook Hill just west of Royal York .

This one is on Edenbridge too about 1km away from home.

These are not the best pictures and I don't know what they are asking, or what they sold for, but you can bet its well over a million perhaps two million in one case.I have one or two more but I will spare you the boredom.
One thing is for sure.It's a good time to sell a house.

They would be over a million pounds round here (not my postcode but "down the road" :-) ).
(Just found the cottage John has been renting. He has given in his notice and apparently someone came round to look at it earlier today. Looking at it - it's the one in the middle - I am gutted to be leaving it behind.)

Thanks Sprocket, it never occurred to me.

We have no intention of selling our house or anything else. I don't care if the price goes up or down because I like living here, close to my daughter.

The housing market in Toronto is going crazy. I have a brochure in front of me where it says Sold. Bearwood Drive, Bungalow-raised 5 bedrooms,3.baths, List price $1,575,000, sold March .On the market only 12 days before sale.I doubt if the sale price was less than list price.

Interesting. I just looked up house prices for our road, not the entire road but the bit around us. Next door is estimated at £451,000. It is roughly the same as ours but in better shape. As you say, it only matters if you want to move and then you probably have to shell out the same or more for something else.

It is inflation. Our consumer price index has increased recently. I can't remember by how much. That is one factor, another is the movement of people to the suburbs. I don't know why that is. It could be because the jobs are in this area. It is a mystery to me .
I don't think we are more flooded with illegals recently!
House prices rise and fall in cycles Victoria.

Yes they do. They seemed to stay the same for ages and now appear to be going up. I feel sorry for young people trying to get on the housing ladder, imagine having to save up 20% of house value for deposit. I suppose, if they are a couple, they try to survive on one salary and save the other, not always easy. Parents usually help - if they can - but it's still hard.

When my daughter bought her bungalow in the last two years, she paid about $701,000 for it and if I remember correctly the mortgage on it is less than $ 260,000.which she can comfortably manage and intends to pay it off as fast as she can.
On the other side of the street from where she lives a similar bungalow was listed this week for $749,900, it is a well kept three bedroom, as is my daughter's. The older couple are moving into a retirement home, somewhere out of Etobicoke, I would guess.
Imagine my surprise when the media said last week that the average house in Toronto costs more than $1,000,000. That includes bungalows too when computing the average.
Houses, are out of reach in this metro Toronto for young couples.
